Great pfd, very comfortable especially compared to the "affordable" pfds I have been wearing all my life. Once on and adjusted properly, I forgot I was wearing it during a full day of paddling. I bought this pfd for whitewater canoeing (I-III) and dinghy sailing and it should fit the bill perfectly.
The storage compartment is great and is actually functional. It held two cliff bars, knife, chapstick and keys with room to spare.
So why did I only give it 4 stars? I wish there were more sizes. With only S/M and L/XL I was on the low end of L/XL so it fits, but all the straps are just shy of being cinched all the way. I guess now I'll just have to bulk up.
